Topic: Found Out I Lost a Friend Today

I truly believe FaceBook is evil. It lets you meet your friends that you've lost over time and then takes them away before you get much more than a "how do you do" out typed out. This is just for one such case lately although I've seen more than I like drop off. Anyway, I'm just sharing with you bunch because I know most of you experience this as well. If I write it down and it'll hurt a little less I'm hoping.

Re: Found Out I Lost a Friend Today

Its  very  sad   when  these  posts  pop  up  Jeff  but  remember   they also   can show  us  the  good  time  we  had    with  friends  we  lost .Last  year  I  lost  my   band  mate  Brian Vial who  I  played  alongside  for  over  10  yrs  .Its  painful when the  posts  pop  up  but  also nice  to  remember  how  we  rocked  together  for  all  that   time ,
Good  song  Jeff  .

Any one who lost a friend can relate to your  song and words. Well said and the words ring   true.     

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Re: Found Out I Lost a Friend Today

Sadly,
I lost my brother yesterday- 86 years old. Today my cell phone went off and it came up his number calling, - chilled me for a moment - it was his wife calling me on his phone.
Good song Jeff

Re: Found Out I Lost a Friend Today

Beautiful lament Jeff. On a brighter note, last Saturday I met an old school friend, yeah 50 years after finishing school! We talked and he told me about another of our school mates that has passed away. It got me to thinking of friends I've made and lost in my short 68 years. They tell you that life is short so make the most of it then they demand taxes!
Sorry for your loss my friend.     

PS, great recording.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
